How will it work?
Students from all classes will connect and collaborate by sharing their stories, experiences, thoughts and opinions about a variety of themes. This will happen through this blog. A different class will “lead” a topic each week, publishing posts and moderating comments. The other classes will read the posts, possibly publish their own posts, and students will leave blog comments.
Through the blog comments, students from the different classes will have conversations. Students will gain an understanding of different countries and cultures. They will make comparisons and contrasts between their lives and other students’ lives. The students will reflect on their own experiences and hopefully develop a curiosity about other students’ stories. They will develop a voice to share their own stories.
Concluding the project
Stayed tuned for a culminating celebration in December!
